- the Pursuit of Happyness, Chris Gardner, American dream, individualism, equality
- The pursuit of happyness, adapted from a true story, tells how Chris Gardner grows from a salesperson to a successful stock broker and finally starts his own business. This movie well illustrates the American Dream and gives insights into American characters, from which western outlooks on life and values are given full display. This paper explores the cultural perspective of Chris Gardner’s Afro-Americans’ American dream from the aspects of individualism and equality.
